For the first few months of my baby’s life, he didn’t really do much but flail his arms spasticly but around 3 months he discovered my necklace started grabbing for it. I’ve always worn this really thin silver chain with a pendant that means a great deal to me. One day he nearly strangled me and almost broke my beloved necklace.
Sound familiar? Yea it’s a baby thing…but it doesn’t have to be like this! Have you ever seen necklaces like these?
They are MAGIC when it comes to grabbing a baby’s attention. Wearing this while nursing will draw your little one’s focus back to where it needs to be – your chest. And they offer tactile engagement so it gives them something to pull on other than your hair or your bra strap.
But not only is it a great nursing necklace, it also doubles as a teething necklace. The beads are made from baby-safe silicone that are soft to chew on and soothing on aching gums.
And to top it all off, it’s super cute! You can wear it as you would any other necklace, except this is one you actually WANT your baby to fiddle with. It comes in really handy when it’s milk time or just to keep an antsy baby occupied while being held.
You can purchase these nursing/teething necklaces from several different places, but my favorite is from My Natural Baby. Why? 3 reasons:
1) They’re BEAUTIFUL – They come in so many cute colors and styles. Their Sugargems line is particularly striking.
2) They’re SAFE – My Natural Baby uses FDA approved, food grade silicone beads, that are free from BPA, PVC, phthalates, lead, cadmium or heavy metals. (Which, believe it or not, is not so uncommon in baby things). If my baby is chewing on it, I want it to be as non-toxic as possible!
3) They WORK – Visually interesting, tactile stimulation, and they promote development of fine motor skills. Plus, they love it! I mean, look at this bub…happy, no?
